This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

JANUAKY 25, 192^ 


The end proposed in the preparation of tUfl Tolume imw to 
present to the Public a Jbook of selections from the GeroMUi 
Classics, more progressive in the anangement of its matterp 
and more inviting to the first attempts of the learner than simi* 
jar woika heretofore in use. It proceeded fiom a conviction 
that a Reader of anj, and especially of a modem language 
studied on the method of Ollendorfl^ should in some measure 
be made a representative of the literature of that language ; 
both for the purpose of relieving the pupU fiom the perpetual 
repetition of exercises and conversational phrases by affi>rding 
him an oip/portaxdij of applying his knowledge of the Grammar 
in another direction, and especially for the puipose of giving 
him an early introduction to those Authors whose woxks he is 
afterwards expected to read, and without which, his attain- 
ments in the language will ever be imperfect. It should, in 
the second place, be complete in itself— pre^supposing nothing 
but the Grammar, and requiring no other exponent of its 
meaning but itself and an intelligent learner. 

The Editor is aware that Ollendorff's method does not neces- 
sarily require a reading book ; and that, if in strict adherence 
to its principle, the pupj has once thoroughly mastered the 
entire book, he may confidently begin the reading of any oae 
of the easier authors, with no other assistance save his dic- 
tionary and his master* It is, however, not unfrequently 
the case, that the pupil wishes only to read the language, 
and that as soon as possible, without going over the entire 
ground of the Method. And indeed it is the conviction ol 
the Editor, resulting fiK>m personal experience as an instructor. 

that a judicious selection of reading pieces placed in tha 
hands of beginners as soon as thej have acquired a sufficient 
fiuniliarity with the inflection of the verb, will, in eveiy case, 
gieatlj enhance their interest and zeaL 

The book, there&re, is designed to be put into the hands 
of learners almost simultaneously with the Grammar. In 
the first section several pieces are analyzed, and the ma- 
OBrials necessaiy for the translation of all of them, are given 
at the bottom of the page. In the second section, the use 
of the vocabulary commences, but the pieces are still short 
and easy, the irregular and compound verbs are given, and 
difficult or idiomatic passages explained or rendered. In the 
third, fourth and fifth secticms, the pieces increase in length 
and difi^ulty, the references to the Grammar diminish, and 
many of the notes assume a historical character. 

In regard to the subject-matter of the book, care has been 
taken to adopt only sudi pieces as are of acknowledged excel* 
lence and as could with safety be read with youth of both sexes 
either in classes at school or in private. The variety in the 
selection will strike eveiy one who but cursorily glances at the 
book. Indeed, variety of matter to excite the curiosi^ and sus- 
tain the interest of the learner, together with a rigorous gradation 
fiK>m the easier to the more difficult, are the two principal 
points aimed at in the arrangement of the pieces-— points 
which were deemed of sufficient importance to more than 
counterbalance all the advantages and pleasure to be derived 
from another and more scientific arrangement. 

Extracts from the drama have not been admitted, because, H 
long, they would have swelled the size of the book to an undue 
extent; if short, they would, like isolated limbs of statues, how« 
ever symmetrical and beautiful in themselves, be still unintelli- 
gible aside from their connection with the whole. 

Among the poetical pieces, special prominence has been as* 
signed to the Ballad, this being a species of poetiy in which the 
greatest of German poets have eagerly striven for the prize, and 
to which many of their noblest creations belong. In the histo- 
Hcalnotes to Uiese ballads free use has been made of the excel 


lenl commentaries of Goetzinger and Schmidt, and in Goethe'^ 
Movelie, on page 194, the inimitable transhition alluded to in the 
intioductoiy note has been followed in the renderings where vei 
it was fomid convenient. 

The labour of preparing a rocabulaiy to such a variety oi 
matter greatly exceeded all previous calculation, and has been 
the cause of considerable delay in the publication of the book. 
A vocabulary was deemed necessaiy, because, in the absence 
of one, the beginner in resorting to a small dictionary would 
&il to find many of the words— especially compounds and idiom- 
atic expressions, and a large one would rather embarrass than 
assist him. The irregular verbs being in the laigest portion 
of the book always given at the bottom of the page, it was at 
first deemed superfluous to repeat their principal parts in the 
vocabulary. ^This design was afterwards abandoned, and the 
imperfect and perfect participle are added to the infinitive of ir 
regular verbs in all the letters of the alphabet except the first 
In irregular and inseparable compounds the participle is repre 
sented in connection with the principal parts, but where the 
compound is separable the imperfect and participle of the 
simple verb alone are given. It is hoped that in a subsequent 
edition an opportunity will be afforded of reducing the vocabu 
laij to perfect unifermity. 

The orthography of the Reader is essentially the same with 
that of the Grammar. 

The Editor now sulnnits the book to the public, with the con- 
sciousness of having earnestly striven to solve the most difiicult 
problem of a Reader and with the hope that it may meet the ex 
pectations of the numerous friends of the Grammar to which i*

1 The CMteau de Boncourt, in Champagne, was the old fhmily residence 
of the poet's ancestors, where he was bom in 1781. When the Revolution 
broke out, the castle was assailed and razed to the ground, and the impover* 
ished family, which had ranked among the very first in France, was obliged 
to flee. Chamisso was brought to Germany at the age of nine, where he 
spent the greater part of his life, and attained to considerable eminence as a 
poet. No one, acquainted with the history of its author, can read thU 
poem without being touched by the sweetness and beauty of its sentiments

' MioNON is one of the most interesting characters in Groethe's WUhdm 
Mei»ter. In her earliest childhood she was secretly carried off from hef 
home in Italy by a company of strolling jugglers, and trained to perform 
feats on the rope, &c. Meiater, who one day happened to witness the per- 
formances of this troop, during which the child was unmercifally abused, 
obtained possession of her, and became her protector. One morning he 
was surprised to find her before his door, singing this song to a cithern, 
which accidentally had fallen into her hands. " On finishing her song for 
the second time, she stood silent for a moment, looked keenly at Wilhelm, 
and asked him : 'Know'st thou the land 1' <It must be Italy,' said Wil 
helm (the history of the child was as yet a mystery to him) ; ' where didst 
thou get the little songi' 'Italy!' said Mignon, with an earnest air; 'ii 
thou go to Italy, take me along with thee, for I am too cold here.' ' Hast 
thou been there already, little dearl' said Wilhehn. But the child was 
silent, and nothing more could be got out of her." — Meister'a Lehrjahre, 
book iii. chap. Ist. ^ For blu^en, glii^en, gie^en. So also in the second

signification of this word is well; it is, however, often employed to indicate

This and the following three SJlSrc^en (fates, ttories) are here inserted for 
the purpose of familiarizing the student with the simple language of lifb. 
The StinttX' unb ^au9max^tn of the Brothers Grimm, from which they 
are selected, are traditionary tales (many of them evidently of a very ancient 
date) orally transmitted from generation to generation, and first collected 
and published in 1812-1814- Though the offspring of a capricious imagi- 
nation, yet they possess all the beauty and freshness of life itself, and never 
fai! to produce interest and delight. The editors (SBil^elm tttlb SafoB 
@ttmm) are two scholars, who, in a critical knowledge of the German lan- 
guage in all its modifications an4 dialects, and its relation to kindred lan- 
guages, have not their equals. — To one who wishes to master conversational 
German, no book so simple in construction, so rich in idioms, and at the 
same time so amusing in its matter, could be recommended.

lows: Axion, a native of Methymna, in Lesbos', was the most eminent mnii- 
dan and lyric poet of his day. After having sojourned for a long time at 
the court of Periander, t]rrant of Corinth, his vrarm friend and patron, he 
felt desirous of visiting Italy and Sicily. He accordingly went to these 
countries, contrary to the advice of his friend, and» after amassing great 
wealthy he embarked again at Tarentum for home in a Corinthian ship 
The mariners, allured by his riches, determined his destruction, giving him 
the altemaiive either of killing himself on board and then enjoying the 
benefit of a burial xk shore, or of plunging into the sea immediately. He 
chose the latter, arrayed himself in liis richest attire, and, after performing 
the so-called Oithian strain, he took the fatal leap. But a dolphin, charmed 
by his music, took him on his back and conveyed him safely to T»narus, Ac 
Herodotus says, that Periander put the mariners to death. The poet deems 
banishment among barbarians, where "naught beautiful would ever charm 
their souls," the severest punishment that could be inflicted on tnem.

* like most poems of the kind, this ballad is founded cm, or rather oceft> 
sioned by, a historical event. Tieek in his ySBaffetmettft^/ Kircher in his 
„Unteri7bif(^e SBelt" (quoted by GStnnger), and Alexander ab Aleuudro in 
his **Die9 genialet" (quoted by Schmidt), make mention of a Nicolas, snmamed 
the Fish, who, from a singular constitution of his nature, found the watery 
element so congenial, nay, necessary to his existence, that he could hardly 
live for a day without being in the sea. Many wonderful incidents are re- 
corded of him, such as swimming from one island to another (in the Medi- 
terranean) on an errand of carrying letters, swimming 500 stadia in a heavy 
gale, hailing and stopping with mariners on the high sea, Ac &c. This 
diving feat is said to have occurred on some great festival. The king is 
Frederick of Naples and Sicily, about A. D. 1500, who, curious to become 
acquainted with the mysterious depths of Charybdis, prevailed on I^Goolas 
to explore it. .The historical diver, in every other respect quite an ordinary 
man, is remarkable only for his extraordinary skill, which was natural to him ; 
he dives, moreover, from purely selfish motives, for the gold that is oflfered 
him, and perishes without our sympathy. Schiller's hero, on the other hand, 
is. one of the retinue of the king, adorned with all the ornaments of youth, 
sf beauty, of a generous ambition, and undaunted courage, in a word, he 
s an ideal, a poetical character, and as such addresses our warmest sympa- 
thies and admiration. The Idng's daughter, as the prize of the second 
plunge, is also purely an addition of the poet. Thus we see, that in pro- 
ducing this admirable poem, the author has exercised that unquestionable 
prerogative of every true artist, in handling materials derived frt>m history 
9t tradition, namely, to add or reject wherever and whatever his design 
may require him to add or reject; thus making the event merely the basis 
on which he rears an ideal structure, perfect as a whole and harmonious in 
ill its parts. Bulwer is the author of a very spirited English version ot 
this poem, from which several passages (distinguished by quotation marks) 
are given in the notes. > 9ltttetdmann obec Stnapp, be he knight or tqwre,

of the whirlpool has been greatly admiied, and is so much the man re- 
■arkable, as Schiller had never seen any real jAenomenon of the kind, not 
even a waterfijl. It reminds us of Homer's spirited delineation of Charyb- 
dis (Odyssey, book xii., v. 234-243), which the poet had made an object of 
special study, and to which he expresses his indebtedness. So yivid and 
tmthfiil is this conception, that Goethe, on observing the Falb of the Rhine, 
called them a verification of the words: ,,itti^ tB ttHiQet nnb ftebetmb (raitfel

^ The original event, which forms the basis of this poem, is recorded in 
the annals of the Order of Malta, by its two most prominent historians, 
Boeio and Yertot d'Aubceuf. Schiller has, on the whole, made but little 
alteration in the historical narrative, except that, no donbt for the sake of 
preserving the unity of the scene, he makes the interval between the 
punishment and the pardon but momentary, whereas really the knight was 
degraded from his order and sentenced to imprisonment, and pardoned sub- 
sequently only at the urgent intercession of his brother-knights. The evi- 
dent aim of the poet is to give us a picture of the spirit and character of 
the earlier Christian chivalry, in which heroic valour was blended with, 
nay made subordinate to, humility and a childlike, unconditional obedience 
to law. That this is the leading idea of the piece, may be seen from the &ct» 
that the description of the fight is introduced only by way of episode, and that 
the relation of grand master, as head and representative of the order, to an 
individual and culpable member of the same, moreover, the humiliating de- 
gradation of the latter and his final pardon, form, as it were, the foreground 
of the picture.— The grand master's name was Helion de Villeneuve, who 
occuiued this post from 1323 to 1346 ; that of the hero, Dieudonn^ de Gozon, 
who, after the decease of his stem master, was elected in his stead. Aiter 
his death, the words " Draconis Extinctor " were inscribed on his tomb, and 
the head of the monster was placed over the city gate, where it could be seen for 
ages afterwards The Knights of the Order of St John the Baptist, also called

^ SBiIb« Uttb Ol^eittgraf was the title of the Counta of Hundsriick in thft 
north of Gennany. The legend of the wild huntsman and of the " raiding 
308t " (U9 U>i(t|enben ^eett^) is of a very ancient date, and Grimm in hia 
„5)eutf^e SJl^t^oIogte" (Gennan Mythology) page 95, and pages 515, 516, 
517, and 518, has shown, that it originated long before the introduction of 
Christianity. The ancient German, like the ancient Greek, or the Indian 
savage, was fond of transferring his own occupations and mode of life ts 
his divinities, and hence the rumbling of the awfully fearful forest, when 
udtated by a storm, was to him the furious chase of Wodan or Wuotam,

weie converted into evil beings, and thus i2Boban'9 •geet (WodanU AotD be- 
came toutlcnbel igeer (raging, mad host), consisting of goblins and malignant 
demons. The story afterwards received its moral aspect by a very natural 
attempt to account for the cauit of this wonderful (alleged) phenomenon, so 
that the wild huntsman finally came to be regarded as a man doomed by 
heaven to the perpetual hardships of the chase until the day of judgment, 
to atone for his heavy ofibnoes against the laws of Grod and man* The poet 
has closely followed the general account; only the appellation ''Wild an 
Rhinegrave '* and of course the general arrangement of the plot are hii 
own. In speaking of Biirger, it is here in place to remark, Uiat he is the 
(ather of the German ballad, and that he has been so successful in tiiis 
species of poetry, that none of his followers or imitators have approximated 
■o closely to the spirit and popular tone of the ancient English ballad, as he 
has. Percy's " Reliques" were his model from which he reproduced many 
pieces, and by which he tested his own. * 3tt8 igont flo^en, to blow, Vfind

their very sound express the tiling he wishes to represent; thus Hifen is 
made from flaf en by the simple change of a vowel, and means about the 
same thing, namely, the clatter and yelping of the party, particularly of the 
dogs ; loudly it yelps and clatters, freed from leashes ; ^opptl is the chain 
and two collars, by means of which a couple of dogs are fastened together.

^ Reynard the fox is the name of an Apologue or Comic Epos, originally 
written in the Low-German, and at one time extensively known, not only 
throughout Germany, but also, in vemacular versions, throughout Franot 
and England. There are several German translations of it, among whidi 
Goethe's in hexameters and Soltau's in doggrel are prominent The extraet 
here given is from book ii-, and treats of Bruin the bear's reception at 
nephew Reynard's castle Malepartus. The substance of the first book is a> 
follows ; One Whitsuntide, King Noble, the lion, was sitting in solemn court, 
surrounded by the chief vassals of his crown from all parts of the land. 
Charges, numerous and heavy, were forthwith preferred against Reynard, 
the arch-knave, who cimningly had stayed away. Hinze the cat, Lampe 
the hare, Isegrim the wolf, and Chanticleer the cock, each with his pecu- 
liar eloquence presented his complaints to the king— one seeking redress for 
violence done to his person, another claiming satisfaction for an outrage 
on his honour, and a third demanding revenge t)n the villain for wilfully 
murdering his relatives and children " with mtent to eat." The indignant 
king is determined to put a stop to this, and forthwith despatches Bruin, 
the bear, an uncle of Reynard's, to summon the criminal to court His 
arrival at Malepartus and the success of his mission are found in the frag- 
ment. ^ Genitive absolute, loUh proud mind, haughtily. * Supply ^dt, had 
craned it. « @e(Bfl ttod^ S^agt^ |tt9Qr, at recently as the day before^ or, it wot 
hif the day before that, ^. * Of which he owned a large number. * €o^Ib

^ The young princess, escorted by Honorio, her equery and page^is jnst re- 
turning from an horseback excursion to the ruins of an ancient family castle. 
Her prince-uncle, who had been one of the small party, had just left them 
and hastened back to the city to aid in the extinction of a fire, which had 
broken out right in tb) midst of the market-place (where just then a fair was 
holding), and which threatened ruin to the entire city. The first part of 
the Novelle consists of a description of the preparations for a chase which the 
prince, attended by a numerous hunting<train, was about to undertake — o! 
the departure of the party— of the occupations of the princess at Lome, and 
sf the motives which induced her to visit the ruins. The ruins themselyea 
are also described at length, both as sketched by the painter and as actually 
ieon by the princess and her escort. A most masterly translation of the en- 
tile piece may be found in Eraser's Magazine, Vol. vi. No. xxxiv., 1832 ; and 
also in Carlyle's Miscellaneous Essays.— Goschel in his lecture on this Novelle 
(Unterl^altuttgen jur (sc^ilbcrung &ht^'f^tt^i^U unb 35cttF»ctfc, 2tcr ©anb, 
@ette 235), conceives the aim of the poet to be to show forth the power and 
victory of the True, the Beautiful, and the Good over everything which sets 
Itself up in hostile oppositioi^ to them ; the key-note or text of the whole being 
expressed in the concluding verse : " So have tamed and firmly iron*d, to a 
poor child's feeble knee, hi^, the forest's lewdly tyrant, Song and Piety." 
fSiaxtn fte !aum . . . ^txd>, they had scarcely descended. ^ .^eranfpringenb, 
Ac, springing cm,, as she hut a short tohile ago {\>ox ^ur^em) had seen him 
painted, he came towards her. On their way to the ruins of the castle they 
had passed through the city, right over the < crowded market-place, where 
among other curiosities, the frightful pictures of wild beasts then exhibited, 
4ad attracted their attention. * <Dem ftetlen Q3trg {U, tmoards fu steqt kUL

* This and the last two pieces are inserted for the purpose of giving the 
learner of maturer mind a specimen or two of the philosophical style of the 
Germans. The extracts from Kant are perhaps the only passages in all hii 
works that approximate at all to eloquence. Always cool, deliberate, s.ib- 
tle, logical eren to rigour, and clear, too, except where obscurity arises 
from a natural imbecility in the use of language— he calmly pursues hu 
analysis of the intellectual and moral constitution of man, incapable ol 
being moved by aught around him or within him, save by the contemplation 
of the " starry heavens above us and the moral law within us." Fichte, oa 
the other hand, is always bold, hery, and eloquent. The estract is charao' 

no Deutfd^ed Sefeb.uc^.

Pronouncing Dictionary. 

BY G. J. ADLEB, A. M., 


One elegant large 8vo.ToL 1400pagei. Price $5 00. 

The aim of the distinguished author of this work has heen to 
embody all the valuable results of the most recent investigations in 
a German Lexicon, which might become not only a reliable guide 
for tjie practical acquisition of the language, but one which would 
not forsake the student in the higher walks of his pursuits, to which 
its treasures would invite him. 

In the preparation of the German and English Part, the basis 
adopted has been the work of FlQgel, compiled in reality by Hei- 
mann, Foiling, and Oxenford. This was the most complete and ju" 
dicioasly prepared manual of the kind in England. 

The present work contains the accentuation of every German 
word, several hundred synonymes, together with a classification and 
alphabetical list of the irregular verbs, and a Dictionary of German 

The foreign words, likewise, which have not been completely 
Gknnanized, and which often differ in pronunciation and inflection 
from such as are purely native, have been designated by particular 

The vocabulary of foreign words, which now act so important a 
part, not only in scientific works, but in the best classics, reviews, 
journals, newspapers, and even in conversation, has been copiously 
supplied from the most complete and correct sources. It is believed 
that in the terminology of chemistry, mineralogy, the practical arts, 
commerce, navigation, rhetoric, grammar, mythology, philosophy, 
&c., scarcely a word will be found to be wanting. 

The Second or German-English Part of this volume has been 
chiefly reprinted from the work of PlOgel. (The attention which 
has been paid in Germany to the prejwration of English dictionaries 
for the German student has been such as to render these works 
very complete. The student, therefore, will scarcely find anything 
deficient in this Sc^cond Part.)

In Ollendorff's grammars is for the first time presented a system 
by which the student can acquire a conversational knowledge of 
Italian. This will recommend them to practical students ; while at 
the same time there is no lack of rules and principles for those who 
would pursue a systematic grammatical course with the view of 
translating and writing the language. 

Prof. Greene's Introduction should be taken up by youthful 
classes, for whom it is specially designed, the more difficult parts of 
the course being left for the larger volume. 

The advanced work has been carefully revised by Prof. Foresti, 
who has made such emendations aad additions as the wants of the 
country required. In many sections the services of an Italian teacher 
cannot be obtained ; the Ollendorff Course and Key will there sup- 
ply the want of a master in the most satisfactory manner.

In making selections for this volume, Prof. Foresti has had re^ 
course to the modem writers of Italy rather than to the old school 
of novelists, historians, and poets ; his object being to present a 
picture of the Italian language as it is written ^and spoken at the 
present day. The literary taste of the compiler, and his judgment 
as an instructor, have been brought to bear with the happiest re* 
suits in this valuable Reader.

A course of grammatical exercises, to aid the learner in acquir-

Professor Oonant. To these is added a Orestomathy, consisting of 
grammatical and exegetical notes on numerous reading-lessons 
selected from Scripture, suited to the wants of the student. Great 
pains haye been taken to insure correctness in the text; andi 
throughout the whole volume, nothing calculated to facilitate ♦he

The admirable system introda<»d by Ollendorff is applied in this 
volume to the Spanish language. Having received, from the two 
distinguished editors to whom its supervision was intrusted, cor- 
rections, emendations, and additions, which specially adapt it to the 
youth of this country, it is believed to embrace every possible ad- 
vantage for imparting a thorough and practical knowledge of Spanish. 
A course of systematic grammar underlies the whole ; but its de- 
velopment is so gradual and inductive as not to weary the learner. 
Numerous examples of regular and irregular verbs are presented: 
and nothing that can expedite the pupil's progress, in the way of 
explanation and illustration, is omitted.

In this volume are embodied the results of many years experi- 
ence on the part of the author, as Professor of Spanish in the Uni- 
versity of Virginia. It aims to impart a critical knowledge of the 
language by a systematic course of grammar, illustrated with 
appropriate exercises. The author has availed himself of the labors 
of recent grammarians and critics ; and by condensing his rules and 
principles and rejecting a burdensome superfluity of detail, he has 
brought the whole within comparatively small compass. By pur- 
suing this simple course, the language may be easily and quickly 
mastered, not only for conversational purposes, but for reading it 
fluently and writing it with elegance.

The pronnnciation of the Castilian language is so clearly set forth in 
this Dictionary, as to render it well-nigh impossible for any person who 
can read English readily, to fail of obtaining the trne sounds of the 
Spanish words at sight 

In the revision of the work, more than eight thousand words, idioms, 
and familiar phrases have been added. 

It gives in both langnages the exact equivalents of the words in gen- 
eral nse, both in their Uleral and metaphorical acceptations. 

Also, the technical terms most frequently used in the arts, in chem- 
istry, botany, medicke, and natural history, as well as nautical and 
mercantile terms and phrases — most of which are not found in other 

Also many Spanish words used only in American countries which 
were formerly dependencies of Spain. 

The names of many important articles of commerce, gleaned from 
the price currents of Spanisn and South American cities, are inserted for 
the oenefit of the merchant, who will here find all that he needs for 
carrying on a business correspondence. 

The parts of the irregular verbs in Spanish and English are here^ 
for the nrst time, given in full, in their alphabetical order. 

The work likewise contains a grammatical synopsis of both lan^ 
gnages, arranged for ready and convenient reference.

The Classic Header m%y, with advantage, follow the Elementary, or may be used

beginner oommenoea with the ** First Book,*^ in whldi the elementaij prlndplea of 
the langnage are unfolded, not In abstract langaage, difficult both to comprehend and 
to remember, but as practically applied in sentences. Throughout the whole, tho 
pupil sees Just where he stanos, and is taught to use and apply what Le learns. His 
progress Is, therefore, as rapid as it Is Intelligent and pleasant. There is no unnecea- 
sary yerblage, nor is the pupiFs attention diyerted from what Is really important by 
a mass of minor details. It is the experience of teachers who use this book, that with 
it a giren amount of Greek Grammar can be imparted to a pupil in a shorter time 
and with Ikr less trouble than with any other text-book. 

The ** First Book** may with advantage be followed by the "Introduction te 
Greek Prose Composition." The object of this work Is to enable the student, as soon 
as he can decline and coi^ugate with tolerable fiicillty, to translate simple sentenoes 
after given examples and with given words ; the principles employed being those jf 
Imitation and very frequent repetition. It is at once a Syntax, a Yocabulary, and an 
Bxardse book. The "Second Part" carries the subject ftirther, unfolding the raosl 
oompUcated constructions, and the nicest points of Latin Syntax. A Key is pro /Idtd

style and the llTeliness of the narratiye. In preparing his notes, the editor has bone 
In mind that they are intended for learners in the earlier part of their elassicat 
eonrse ; he has therefore made the explanations in the former part of the work quite 
fhll, with frequent references to snch grammars as are in the hands of most students. 

The notes proper are purely explanatory and grammatlcaL Other remarks, in 
the way of eritiolsm or investigation, are appended to the seyeral dhapteis, for the 
sake of awakening reflection and inciting to ftirther inquiry. 

A condensed treatise on the Ionic Dialect and the peenliar forms of dedensIoB

has heretofore embarrassed the student in reading this author. If this chapter Is 
learned in advance, the dialectic forms, otherwise so troublesome, will be reoogniaed

**I have seen with great gratification your republication of Mill- 
house's Dictionary, a work which is indispensable to all students of 
the Italian language. In Italy and in En^and this Dictionary is re- 
garded as a standard work, uniting great comprehensiveneBS with most 
convenient dimensions. Its orthography and idiomatic translations are 
in strict conformity with the usage of the best Italian writers, whose 
works the author has evidently studied with great care. I most cor- 
dially recommend it as the best Italian and English Dictionary in use."
